Super 8: Last Man Standing

By Ron Jackson

With South African boxing in the doldrums and possibly at it lowest ebb in recent years South Africa’s most successful promoter Rodney Berman has come up with a master plan with the introduction of the Super 8 Last Man Standing cruiserweight competition, with the first round commencing at Emperors Palace, Kempton Park on June 16.

This has also resulted in trainer Nic Durandt and promoter Berman once again working together after their bad tempered split some four years ago.

Former South African light heavyweight champion Daniel Bruwer (23-4-1, 19 KOs) who has rejoined the Durandt stable meets former South African junior heavyweight champion Danie Venter (12-5, 9 KOs) in the first series of fights. (more…)

ARD balks; heavyweight twinbill implodes

Top German network ARD has announced that it won’t televise the July 14 fight between David Haye​​ and Dereck Chisora because according to them, the fight doesn’t match the image they are trying to portray. ARD originally wanted the fight, which was to be part of a heavyweight doubleheader also that also would feature WBA beltholder Alexander Povetkin against Hasim Rahman. However, after Wladimir Klitschko labeled Haye-Chisora “a freak show,” the German Boxing Federation (Bund Deutscher Berufssboxer) called on the European Boxing Union to ban the Luxembourg Commission for sanctioning the fight, and the BBBofC threatened to terminate the license of anyone associated with the show, ARD had a change of heart. Promoter Sauerland Event is now reportedly planning to move the Povetkin-Rahman fight to Germany. Haye-Chisora is expected to draw 40,000+ to an outdoor stadium in London if it actually comes off.

Warren threatens BBBofC with lawsuit

Top British promoter Frank Warren has hit back at the British Boxing Board of Control over their threat to ban anyone participating in the Haye vs. Chisora fight slated for July 14 in London. Warren charges that the BBBofC has 1) no substantive grounds to revoke his license and 2) has not properly complied with any procedural requirements.

Warren further alleges that the BBBofC is trying to stop him from being involved in a legitimate and lawful fight governed by another Federation and interfering with his freedom to work and to earn a living. He wants written confirmation that he will not lose his license by close of business on Wednesday or he’s taking them to court.

Sent: Fri May 11 19:38:57 2012

Dear Mr Smith,

I refer to the press release which you issued earlier this week in which you state that any member of the British Boxing Board of Control who participates in the Haye v. Chisora fight “will be deemed to have terminated” both his membership of your Board and his licence. As you know I am Dereck Chisora’s manager and even if I am not at the fight I will be ‘participating’ in accordance with your definition of this word in the press release.

I write to make two complaints about your press release. The first is that there are no substantive grounds to revoke my licence and the second is that you have not properly complied with any procedural requirements. (more…)

Green: I plan to put lot of hurt on Kessler

Allan Green has arrived in Denmark. One week before his WBC Light Heavyweight World Championship (Silver) showdown with Mikkel Kessler (44-2, 33 KOs) at PARKEN Stadium, the 32-year-old American (31-3, 21 KOs) and his coach Anthony Wilson landed at Copenhagen airport. “I am here to beat Mikkel Kessler and take the belt home,” Green said when meeting crews and photographers upon his arrival. “I plan to put a lot of hurt on him. I have seen almost all of his fights, there is nothing he can do to surprise me. I know what to expect.”

Green is very satisfied with his preparation in America: “I have been training hard and everything has been coming together nicely. I have the energy and the power to put him into a lot of trouble. What that means, Kessler will find out the hard way on May 19. He will go down.”

By Dennis Principe

If the weigh-in is an indication, then fireworks are expected when WBO flyweight champion Brian Viloria stakes his crown against former tormentor Omar Nino Romero of Mexico Sunday morning at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City, Philippines. Viloria and Romero had no difficulty meeting the weight limit as they both tallied a fit 112lbs during the official weigh-in held at the Discovery Suites.

“We’ve already put in 24 rounds so what’s another 12 rounds? We’ve trained everyday for three months so we’re going to give our 110% because that’s what we’re here for,” said Viloria.

Supporting the main eventer are two former champions Rodel Mayol of the Phillippines and another Mexican Julio Cesar “Pingo” Miranda in a 10-round non-title fight which could serve as potential challenger for the winner between Viloria and Miranda. Both weighed 114.

The card, dubbed “Island Assault 4: The Battle” presented by Solar Sports, is being distributed in the United States by Integrated Sports Media for live viewing at 9:00 PM/ET – 6:00 PM/PT on both cable and satellite pay-per-view via iN Demand, DIRECTV, DISH Network and Avail-TVN for a suggested retail price of $29.95.

Welterweight Aron Martinez is not known for his punching power, but it sure helped sway the fight in his favor on Friday night. Martinez dropped Marks once in the fourth round, eventually finishing him off in the seventh round of a scheduled eight round bout at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, CA. The bout headlined a seven-bout “Locked N’ Loaded” card, presented by Thompson Boxing Promotions.

Martinez was victorious in his last bout on February 24th, winning an eight round technical split decision over Dashon Johnson. Martinez got up from a flash knockdown to outbox Johnson throughout most of the fight to win. Marks was coming off a seventh round knockout over Oscar Godoy in his last fight in January. The victory over Godoy snapped a two-bout losing streak. (more…)

Willie Nelson upsets Yudel Jhonson

Ringside results and photos by Chris Cozzone

Substitute jr middleweight Willie “The Great” Nelson (18-1-1, 11 KOs) won a surprise ten round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Yudel Jhonson (12-1, 8 KOs) on Friday night at the Texas Station Gambling Hall & Hotel in Las Vegas. The 6’3 Nelson dropped Jhonson with a right hand in round two, but didn’t follow up. Jhonson floored Nelson hard in round four with a big left. Nelson, however, staggered Jhonson in round five and pretty much controlled the fight after that. Scores were 95-94, 97-92, 97-92. Nelson, who is trained by Jack Loew, took the fight on 11 days notice after Jhonson’s original foe Freddy Hernandez pulled out with an injury.

In a clash of unbeaten super middleweights, WBC #9 Badou Jack “The Ripper” (11-0, 8 KOs) barely won an unpopular eight round split decision Alexander Brand (17-1, 15 KOs). The wild, free-swinging attacks of Brand gave Jack all sorts of problems, but Jack prevailed on two cards 77-75, 77-75. Brand was up 77-75 on the third card.

In other results: Cuban super featherweight Rances Barthelemy (16-0, 11 KOs) remained undefeated with an eight-round unanimous decision over Las Vegas’ Robert Osiobe (11-5-4, 6 KOs). Scores were 79-72 and 78-73 twice. Las Vegas super feather Jesus Gutierrez (4-0, 2 KOs) brought the crowd to watch him batter crosstown debuter Jimmy Jones (0-1) around, knocking him down twice en route to a TKO win at 2:34 of round three. All three pre-TV bouts ended by TKO: Cuban light-heavy Yunieski Gonzalez (8-0, 5 KOs) took out Phoenix’ Carlos Reyes (5-4-1, 3 KOs) at 1:39 of the first; Michigan cruiser William Mitch Williams (4-2-1, 4 KOs) stopped Carlos Gaytan (3-1-1, 3 KOs), of Reno, at 1:20 of the first; and Puerto Rican super middleweight Roberto Acevedo (4-0, 3 KOs) TKO’d Milwaukee’s Martinez Porter (1-2) at 2:19 of round two.

Alekseev and Arslan battle to a draw

European cruiserweight titleholder Alexander Alekseev (23-2-1, 20 KOs) retained his title by getting a twelve round draw against former world champion Firat Arslan (32-5-2, 21 KOs) on Friday night at the EWS Arena in Goeppingen, Germany. At the age of 41, Arslan seemed to be in tough against the 31-year-old former amateur world champion. But, for the first ten rounds both fighters met in the center and traded punches on even terms with the gritty Arslan getting the upper hand as the fight progressed. Alekseev changed his tactics and dominated by boxing from long range in round eleven, but it was back to toe-to-toe in the twelfth with Alekseev shading it. In the end, scores were 114-114, 114-114, 116-113 Alekseev.

In a fight that figured to go twelve rounds and did, WBC Mediterranean middleweight titlist Goekalp Oezekler (13-1, 6 KOs) won a controversial split decision over Mouez Fhima (21-2-1, 8 KOs). Scores were 115-114, 115-113 for Oezekler, 116-112 for Fhima.
